there are exceptional circumstances. the police officers association had objected to the original proposal and demanded that that additional language be inserted into the policy. the union says officers need latitude when the public might be in danger and each shooting will be reviewed on a case-by- case basis.>> no policy can predict every situation. officers are expected to exercise sound judgment and critical decision-making when using force. also last night in a 4-3 vote they band of maneuver that's known as a cold hearted restraint it's a hold around the neck used to subdue someone who's been taken into custody. supporters of the maneuver say it's not the same as a chokehold. it's really ineffective tech need for female officers and smaller male officers and when it's done properly it's not lethal.>> is their situation where that hold resulted in an injury or fatality and that
question has been posed into my knowledge it has knots.>> the police union has taken issue with the commission approving these new restrictions without authorizing alternative force options such as stun gun's. the union believes this could lead to more officer involved shootings. the police commission did not debate the stun gun's at last nights meeting in order to voted -- to avoid getting bogged down with the issue. they did approve those two major changes to the san francisco police department use of force policy and those changes take effect immediately. thank you. 6:05 is the time. the san francisco police officers association frustrated about the process for the new police chief. the mayor ed lee did not tell
